Question Best Endurance Saddle under 600 or 700

Looking for an endurance saddle under 600 or 700.
Whats the best brands and sites to work with?
I would like it to be light weight, which I think is a standard for a saddle marked for endurance :P
Thanks for any imput.

I bought a used big horn endurance saddle(18lbs) and reinsman pad for $300 shipped off eBay. I had the western version and loved it. So far I've only trail ridden in it and no issues. Maybe one day I can upgrade:)

I agree with the bighorn, but you will have to look for used to meet that price level. Used ones maybe also look at National Bridle, Tucker or Sharon Sayer

For a new one, Abetta and Sycamore Creek Saddle are the only ones I can think of for under 600.00 to 700.00 when new that are any good.

Stay away from Hilason, King Series, Silver King, Royal King, Neutron, Trekker, Double T, Triple T and the no name and Package Saddle Deals

Likely you are going to have to look for something used in that price range.. so when you find a saddle that catches your eye, use the internet to your advantage to look for reviews. While no single saddle works for every horse or every person, if the majority of the reviews are sketchy, you know you will want to pass.

Wintec is another brand that offers lightweight saddles in that price range, but they are english-based or aussie-based, which I don't think is what you were looking for.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

My western style ( no horn), western fenders, is for sale. It's from National Bridle. I bo't it used in good condition and it was too small for my TWH. The tree size is correct, I hadn't realized how broad he is. It has aluminum stirrups. Leather and cordura and around 20lbs. Similar to the Big Horn.

I bought this one and it fits my horse great. Since it is not adjustable, you would have to look closely at the sizes and see if you think it will work for you. 15 pounds.

For some reason Stateline only has the Full QH but most other dealers have it also in the regular Bar which is a narrower gullet

I should add that the Abetta is adequate for my purposes, but I doubt that it would be a serious competition saddle. There is nothing wrong with it but I don't see the serious competitors using them either.

The wide worked out well for my fat girl.
